Eladrin society is bound by countless customs and rules, dividing it into clear social classes and roles. Although they consider physical combat an honorable pursuit, they look down upon the idea of physical labor. The eladrin especially enjoy the arcane arts, the chosen magic of their god Corellon.
The main power groups in the eladrin society of the Feywild are the four houses: the House of Summer, the House of Winter, the House of Spring, and the House of Autumn. The houses are constantly bickering over political, military, and economic issues in their cities, which makes progress slow.
